Inland Revenue recently released a consultation document requesting feedback on possible policy changes to support a more digital tax system.

Feedback is requested by 31 March 2022, and specific areas for requested feedback include:

  • The regulatory framework applying to external parties, including intermediaries and other entities which interact with the tax and payments system
  • The rules, frameworks, and scope of data sharing
  • How tax legislation could support a more digital future
